Flyer Pack Posterzine

This forms the back bone of our monthly flyer packs that go out to shops and clubs and is included as the front cover of every pack. The posterzine is a full colour poster that folds down to a 16 page booklet. It is full of previews for the best events taking place that month, editorial, photos of clubbers at the best parties and competitions to win merchandise, tickets and whatever else is on offer! We print and distribute 15,000 copies every month.

We have limited advertising space which is extremely cost effective when compared to printing and distributing 15,000 flyers separately.

GIG / CLUB HAND TO HAND DISTRIBUTION

This is a great way to reach potential customers. Either as they are waiting to enter venues at the beginning of the night or as they are leaving at the end, you get their full attention with our flyer team giving out your flyer on its own (not bundled with any others) to ticket holders.

We stand in the best positions outside the venue and proactively engage with people to ensure we give out the most flyers possible for the booked period of time.

"Probably the most targeted distribution you can get"

Service Price
Entrance flyering (between 6pm-10pm) £20 + vat per person, per hour

Minimum booking is 2hrs per person and depending on the venue, we can give out up to 1,000 flyers during a two hour shift.

Quantity of flyers distributed depends on the venue and a suggested amount will be confirmed at the time of booking.
